    Compiz-fusion works great on my x700 Mobility resizing windows and watching videos seems to work like a charm. Firefox scrolling is still slow but that is to be expected.

    Running FC10 here
    Did you still have to downgrade libdrm and modify the initrd, or has that been fixed?

          The Catalyst release numbers are year.month. Yes, that does mean the first release of the year should be 9.01, not 9.1

            I expect something bad to happen with 9.11.

                Long way to go AMD

                I will halt all ATI video card purchasing decisions until I see a truly working Linux driver. Be it open source or not. period.

                        Does this fix OpenGL + Compiz at all or do GL windows still flicker?

                        Regards, Freddie.

                            it did look fine (no flickering) when I tried a video on kde 4 with compositing enabled, up to the point where I switched it to fullscreen and the whole thing crashed...

                              Have you ever enabled compositing on a nvidia card?
                              I beg to differ. I'm running Compiz on my work PC with a GeForce 9500GT, and it's smooth and zippy under the 177.80 driver packaged with Ubuntu Intrepid.

                              That's with two monitors with different sizes and resolutions (one 1680x1050, the other 1280x1024), running TwinView with the desktop bridged across both displays. With compositing.

                              Is this really that unusual? It seems like it should be the norm rather than the exception.

                                So? Any news?
